Michael Mishak of the Las Vegas Sun concluded that Sue Lowden and Danny Tarkanian âstole the show.â
All the candidates were in general agreement wrote Mishak. âAll support Arizonaâs tough new immigration law and oppose Congressâ financial regulatory reform efforts.â
Tarkanian attacked Lowdenâs âsuggestion that bartering is an effective means to reduce health care costs.â
Lowden attacked Tarkanian for âdisregarding Reaganâs 11th Commandment to not speak ill of other Republicans and targeted his record as a lawyer.â She claimed the âNevada Supreme Court had âreprimanded him for practicing without a license.â
Tarkanian answered, saying âLowden has waffled on her positions, citing the federal bank bailout in particular. He also attacked her tax record as a state legislator and her past donations to Reidâs campaigns.â The audience booed.
Lowden admitted she and her husband had supported Reid âdecadesâ ago. The crowed booed. She added that Senator Reid had changed.
I donât know if its because heâs been there for three decades or because of the leadership, but heâs a different person than he was three decades ago. Iâm making sure he doesnât go back to Washington to represent us.
Lowden touted her fund raising. âShe leads the Republican field in the money race, having raised $2.1 million.â A wealthy candidate, she matched her donations in the last quarter.
Sharron Angle, the favored candidate of the Tea Party Express also attacked Lowden. Mishak concludes Lowden is leading the Republican race and time is getting short with the Primary election June 8.
